Could chronic facial pain and chronic diseases of inflammation be caused by your jaw bone?


Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 9.17.32 AMThe chronic softening in the jawbone are a phenomenon that is not perceived by many areas of medicine and dentistry to date, or is not taken seriously, at least in their health effects. This “jaw-inflammation” were by the American pathologist Professor BOUQUOT as “Neuralgia Inducing Cavitational Osteonecrosis” (“neuralgia inducing cavity forming osteonecrosis = NICO) because they often cause unspecific facial pain.


Health effects of Kieferostitis

The health effects of NICO in the jaw can be condensed in two areas: on the one hand the local aspect of a chronic underlying irritation of the facial nerve. Here the symptom picture as trigeminal neuralgia is known. NICO is thus a special form of a jawbone disease – based on facial pain and trigeminal neuralgia. On the other hand, the systemic failure of important organs or cell function by releasing their inflammatory neurotransmitters, which are demonstrated in NICO areas. This shows a much less clear, but a confusing picture of the diverse symptoms NICO effect.

This bone disease have an impact on the overall system in terms of a silent chronic inflammation: The easily comprehensible term “NICO” has yet naturalized internationally in clinical parlance. This, and the non-visibility on conventional radiographs – “NICO does not exist” – makes the study of the chronic Kieferostitis / NICO not easier, but requires everyone involved scientific openness and probable cause search in a particular case of the patient concerned.

To disregard the NICO as sickening change the jawbone certainly bears the problem of their X-ray presentation at: A normal X-ray image does not show the NICO or only very limited!
The introduction of digital volume tomography (DVT), a method is available which represents the structures in a NICO with greater reliability. We serve for the special bone densitometry in the jaw designed CaviTAU ultrasound system as an additional imaging procedure for the metrological determination of bone density and to hedge the previous X-ray diagnostics. For the purposes of the statutory duty of care CaviTAU is a non-load-forming additive method.

Structure and appearance of a Jaw ostitis / NICO

NICO is an insufficient supply in the form of a metabolic disorder that leads to greasy-degenerative bone resolutions. In general, deer NICO represents as greasy lumps that are easy to spoon from the medullary canal of the jawbone. These degenerate fat cells in NICO-areas form inflammatory messenger substances (cytokines / chemokines) that affect other organs and may be associated with inflammatory joint disorders, breast cancer, Hashimoto’s, multiple sclerosis and other tumors there.

This video is about the truth regarding your TMJ Problem.

This video is about the truth about your skull and how it relates to your health.

By John Lieurance, D.C.
There is a condition that is common in stressed out people. It’s called Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD), sometimes referred to as myofacial pain dysfunction or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome. It’s a condition involving pain in the muscles of the jaw used for chewing and/or the temporomandibular joint, which connects the lower jaw to the skull. It’s generally thought that our problems usually migrate to our weakest link. What can make the TMJ a weak link?
These symptoms are usually aggravated by more than one cause. Clinching at night, tight chewing muscles, and damage to the jaw itself from whiplash are generally thought to be the primary culprits. One factor that isn’t discussed by many doctors is the overall position of the bones of the head. Many physicians don’t comment on it because it’s a relatively new discovery in medicine that the various bones of the skull actually can move. It’s very similar to the way the teeth move when your bite is off or when you have braces on. It’s a remodeling that takes place that is thought to occur in order for man to adapt to various conditions.
Weston Price, a famous dentist, first discovered this by studies of the skulls of various tribes around the world and found that their skulls developed differently depending of different stressful conditions. He found that diet was a major factor in maintaining a wide palate.
Your palate is the roof of your mouth. When it narrows it moves up like a tent and causes teeth to crowd as well as intrudes up into the sinuses. A narrowing of the palate is the main reasons we need to have our wisdom teeth removed. Having your wisdom teeth removed is not the only downside of a narrow palate, sinusitis, sleep apnea, snoring, low energy and oxygen levels, poor sleep, premature aging, chronic neck and back pain, headaches, and yes TMJ are all potential side effects of a narrow palate.
Fortunate for us the skull can also be reshaped back to its ideal structure and some doctors have found that various methods have shown to make remarkable changes in the skull. Orthodontists have now begun to do adult palate expansion. This was once only done in children to make more room for developing teeth. Many dentists have noticed that these kids also begin to thrive once their plate is returned to a normal width. There are also various cranial manipulations that have been shown to move the cranium and widen the palate.
If prior TMJ treatment has failed try this simple test. Put your index fingers over the joint of you jaw. Open and close your mouth and notice if you feel the joint move into your finger. This is only possible if the jaw doesn’t have enough room to fit into your temporal area of your skull. When the temporal bones are not positioned symmetrically, the jaw has difficulty making smooth contact with the skull. When the jaw joint binds, there are joint sounds and often, but not always, pain.

For sever damage in the TM Joint one should consider PRP to rebuild the damaged tissue.  Learn more about this here.
